‘Searching for Sugar Man’ star Rodriguez to make his Royal Albert Hall debut | Life at the Hall

Rodriguez

Cult singer-songwriter Rodriguez will return to London in 2015 to make his Royal Albert Halldebut in a special show on 7 May 2015.

Rodriguez’s rise to international fame is perhaps one of the most fascinating stories in music. After the release of two little-sold albums in the early 1970s, Rodriguez’s work became hugely successful in South Africa, Australia, Botswana and Zimbabwe, unbeknownst to him.

Years later a group of loyal South African fans attempted to make contact with their hero; their successful efforts and Rodriguez’s intriguing life story were retold in the 2012 documentary film Searching for Sugar Man. The feature won in the Best Documentary categories at the 2013 BAFTA and Academy Awards and has brought Rodriguez’s music belated international fame and acclaim.

This 2015 show will be Rodriguez’s first performance at London’s most iconic venue and follows sell-out concerts at prestigious venues around the world.

    Do you really mean “life” at the Hall ? Interesting, unless it is LIVE. Would love to be there.
